Most Famous Football Clubs From Premier League Table And Their Standings
Bournemouth (Cherries) - Bournemouth from Premier League Table
The club was founded in the distant 1890th year, and this nickname of the team appeared in 20 years later, when Bournemouth moved to the Vitaliti Stadium. In general, there are two versions of the appearance of such a "nickname". The first says that the nickname appeared because of the cherry-red T-shirts, in which then the players played. According to the second version of the current stadium, "Bournemouth" was built in the wasteland next to the estate, in which there were many cherry trees. But it unfortunately do not help to occupied the high standing in the table.
Arsenal (Gunners) - Arsenal is always on high standings
This team was created at the end of the XIX century by the workers of the royal arsenal, where weapons were created and stored for the British army. At that time the club was called Arsenal Woolwich. But in 1913 the collective moved from Woolwich, which is in the south-east of London, to the north of the British capital. The name of the district was excluded from the name, but the name "Arsenal" remained connected with the weapon. Arsenal is always on high standings in Premier League.
Brighton and Hove (Seagulls) - Brighton and Hove a club of no great standings in the table
This nickname is associated with the location of Brighton and its association with seagulls. It is worth noting that before the 1970s, this football club had no "nicknames", and "gulls" their team was nicknamed by local fans after one of the matches with "Crystal Palace", also called "eagles". And in 1977, "Brighton" already made seabird it's symbol, adding it to the emblem of the club.
Burnley (Bordeaux) - Premier League table standings for five times
"Burnley" received its famous nickname because of team colors, which were chosen back in 1910. The story goes that Burnley chose this color to be something similar to Aston Villa, which at that time was considered the most successful team in England. For seven seasons from 1893 to 1900 the Birmingham team won the championship and got the first place in Premier League table standings for five times.
Chelsea (Retired) - Former Premier League table standings champoin
Recently, many people used to refer to "Chelsea" as "blue", although the very first name of this club was "retired". In 1905, the first emblem was created, which depicted an elderly man from the royal hospital "Chelsea", where veterans of the British army were stationed. Only in 1950, a retired giant was replaced by a mighty lion, and the name of the club immediately changed to "Chelsea".
Crystal Palace (Eagles) as Victorian exhibition hall
From 1905 to 1973, this team was called "glaze" because of the obvious links with the large Victorian exhibition hall Crystal Palace, for which even the area of south London was renamed. Only from the beginning of the 1970s the club received the nickname "Eagles" when the club's logo was changed, and the team began to play T-shirts with red and blue stripes.
According to one theory in the area of the Rupert tower, which is depicted on the emblem of the Liverpool club, there was a shop where they traded in toffee, which played a significant role in the history of Everton.
The club owes this nickname to it's fans, who elected him in 1969 during the voting. The fact is that it is the image of the terrier that is often associated with Yorkshire. A pair of terriers Terry and Tilly serve as mascots to entertain fans of Huddersfield.
Leicester City (The Foxes)
County Leicestershire is considered the birthplace of hunting for fox since the middle of the XVIII century, and the animal is an outstanding symbol of this region. This nickname was accepted by fans in the late 1940s, when the fox first appeared on the T-shirts of the club.
Liverpool (The Reds)
It is obvious that the famous nickname "Liverpool" - "red" was taken because of the club colors. However, only after several years of it's existence, the Merseyside chose these shades. Initially, the team played in white and blue colors, and only after the 1960s the club switched to a red kit.
Manchester City (Citizens) - Now The First On Premier League Standings
"Manchester City" is often called "Citizens". It is quite obvious that this nickname is an actual extension of the name of the team. Sometimes the club's players are also called "sky-blue", which is understandable, because of the colors of the form. It is believed that the city of Manchester used its blue color almost all its history, and in the 1890s, he was taken to himself and "Manchester City", which was created as "San Marco" from Gorton, and then AFC "Ardvik".
Manchester United (Red Devils) - Premier League Standings Second
When the team was still called "Newton Heath", it was christened "pagans", because it was the first English club, which held its matches on Sundays. After the name of the team and its colors changed, the Sirians received the nickname "red", and soon the French media added "devils" to the 1930s.
Newcastle United (Magpies)
In 1892, the team "Newcastle East End" and "Newcastle West End" merged into one club. Now, "Newcastle United" decided to abandon the old form and took the iconic black and white stripes for their T-shirts, and then received this famous nickname.
Southampton (Saints) - most recognizable nicknames of the football teams
"Saints" - one of the most famous and recognizable nicknames of teams among the clubs of the English Premier League. Members of the youth association, which existed in 1885 at the Church of St. Mary, formed a football team, which in 1897 received its current name, and in 2001, moved to the St. Mary's Stadium.
Stoke City (Potters)
The football club was founded in 1863, and is one of the oldest in England, and when it came to choosing a nickname, the "potters" was quite an obvious option. The fact is that this city became the center of the country's pottery industry from the first half of the 17th century. In this case, behind the nickname, as in most clubs of the Premier League, is a deep local significance.
Swansea (Swans) - Based on abbreviation of city name
Swansey, which declined in Swan, which means "swan" in English, and served as an obvious nickname for the Welsh club. In addition, this bird has become one of the most famous symbols of British football in the last 20 years.
Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs)
Spurs, which means "spurs" - obviously, short for the full name of the team "Tottenham Hotspur". Why Hotspur? This story dates back to the XIV century, when the knight Henry Percy, who owned the lands of Tottenham, received such a nickname for his courage and speed. When it came to creating a football club in the area, people in this knight saw the person whom they would like to honor. By the way, until 1884 the club was called simply "Hotspur"
Yellow and black club colors in themselves already dictated the nickname for the team, so it's no surprise that this collective is sometimes called "hornets." Although, until 1959, "Watford" often experimented with colors of game forms.
West Bromwich Albion (The Throstles)
The original nickname and idea for a new logo in the club appeared when the team moved in 1900 to the stadium "Hawthorns". Near this arena in the bushes of different plants are often seen thrushes, because of what the whole region and got its new symbol
West Ham (The Hammers)
This nickname was almost born with a team that was founded in 1895 on a river in eastern London for employees of Thames Ironwork. Already then on the emblem of the club there was a pair of hammers used for shipbuilding.
